We’re getting all crafty!
For those that follow the trials and tribulations of our shenanigans aboard Hannah the Narrowboat you will already know we are having to look at alternative ways to fund our beer fridge now that we are in lockdown again! So, being a bit arty farty and crafty we thought we would make some stuff ourselves to sell on our online shop that Paul created a couple of months ago. Primarily we started with t-shirts but obviously don’t want it to become just another t-shirt shop. For a few years now people have been asking why we don’t sell Christmas cards so we thought, why not give it a try? I looked back at some of my old photographs to seek out some shots taken in the snow that I could use as references to create watercolours from. I ended up doing a series of four designs which you can buy in packs of 8 (2 of each design) at our online store – just click the Christmas card image below this post.
Not to be outdone, the lady of the boat swears by those wheat bag things that you heat up in the microwave to put on your aching body parts so decided to produce some of her own aboard the boat. She tried to show me how the sewing machine works but after around 3 minutes I thought, nah, far too complicated for my brain and swiftly got back to playing with my crayons. By the time you read this they will be up on the shop too and they make a great Christmas or birthday gift. By all accounts they have triple stitched seams and anti-fray stitching around the edges!
